Graham Coombs left this review about The Castle Inn

A nice old frontage and you are greeted by some splendid ceiling beams and woodwork inside, but the effect is ruined by numerous strings of fairy lights hung in all directions. The room behind is a bit tedious while to the rear is a courtyard covered in Astroturf and a side function room with its own bar. A pair of handpumps dispensed Ghost Ship and Old Rosie. All in all, a pub with considerable but unrealised potential and could be much better.

Just a quick pint, then I'm off left this review about Castle Inn

Claims plausibly to be Newport's oldest pub, and it certainly looks the business both outside (with venerable brickwork) and within (with very dark wood panelling and imposing fireplaces). Partly opened-out at some stage, but retaining a decent amount of character in the various seating / dining areas. With three of four handpumps in operation, I found Ringwood RazorBack, Bombardier Burning Gold and Nethergate Suffolk Country (£3.80) on offer.

An end terraced 17th century brick built pub, with stone lintels, which claims to be the oldest pub in Newport. It has a patio area at the back and is in the GBG 2010

The interior has two rooms and there is a separate function room and skittle alley called the Stable Bar. The pub rooms are a bar and a dining room. The bar is in wood panel, with beamed ceilings and has a stone floor, with the wood bar to the right on entry and a nice brick fireplace. The dining room is in brick, wood panel and white plaster ceiling, with wood floors and another impressive fireplace – the tables and chairs are in dark wood as well – with candles on them. There wasn’t much in the way of pictures and ephemera, but the whole atmosphere of the pub is a delight. The service was excellent, with a mature and friendly clientele.

Beer; tap stuff, with Leffe, with London Pride, Spitfire, Hobgoblin and a very good Goddard’s 1864 Bitter

A sheer delight to visit, well worthy of its GBG status, with a pleasant atmosphere and good service. A must.
